Filmmaker Katie McEntire Wiatt’s inspiring new film, Fly Like a Girl, explores the world of women in aviation through a series of intimate interviews from some of the most legendary women in the industry and the next generation of little girls who are ready to fly.

The heartfelt stories shared by some of the living legends in the field, as well as women just beginning to make a name for themselves, all center around a similar shared struggle. Although airplanes and space shuttles don’t care about your gender, the rest of the world still discriminates against women in aviation. From United States Senator Tammy Duckworth who served as a U.S. Army helicopter pilot sharing her story of being much more limited than her male counterparts in requesting to engage in most military combat, to three-time U.S.

New book explores beauty of Hoosier State’s obsession with basketball

Three years ago, the Indiana Pacers hit on an idea for a marketing slogan and instead found they’d conjured a phrase that defines an entire state: “We Grow Basketball Here.”

It is not by accident that two of the men whose names grace major college basketball player of the year awards, John Wooden and Oscar Robertson, were born and raised here. It is not by accident that Rick Mount, George McGinnis, Glenn “Big Dog” Robinson and Steve Alford were produced by Indiana high schools, or that Bob Knight, Gene Keady, Rick Majerus and Brad Stevens became coaching stars on this state’s college stages.

Take a walk through any Indiana subdivision and count the basketball hoops in the driveways. Take a stroll near the playgrounds in Indianapolis and see how often the courts are occupied with pickup games.

This is the spirit, the intrinsic connection between community and sport, that photographers

DFO Community Corrections explores new probation model

The three-county probation system has been asked by the National Institute of Corrections, which is part of the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Prisons, to determine the feasibility of adopting a probation model called dosage probation.

“The theory of dosage, it’s not time-based, it’s programming-based,” said James Johnson, community services supervisor for DFO Community Corrections. “You complete the prescribed amount of programming, and once you meet a specific amount of hours, then you are eligible for discharge of probation.
